If you want to get from anywhere south of Hobartís central business district (CBD) to anywhere in the northern suburbs or the eastern shore, or vice versa, itís practically certain that you will have to travel along Macquarie and Davey Streets. Depending on where youíre going to or coming from itís likely that youíll also use one or other of the east-west one-way arterials Molle, Barrack, Harrington, Murray, Argyle or Campbell Streets. These are the realities of Hobartís urban traffic, caused by the constraints of topography and the failures of past governments to construct alternative road infrastructure. The amount of through traffic has been growing and when mixed with traffic trying to access the CBD creates a dilemma that lies at the heart of Hobartís planning problems.
